Zach Weddle has loved tearing apart, modifying, and building things since he was young. The only thing that compared was his love for drawing; these hobbies combined with an aptitude for mathematics led Zach to Mechanical Engineering, but it never felt like a perfect fit. Zack wanted to work on full systems and products with consideration for the user. After a few sleepless nights of Googling later, he found industrial design but had never heard of the degree. Now, three years in, he can confidently say this seems like the perfect fit.
